Get Ready for Every Celeb to Wear This Hideous Color in 2017
Every year, Pantone reveals its color of the year and like clockwork, every celebrity and Insta hottie starts wearing it like it’s their job.
Last year it was Rose Quartz — you know, the baby pink color that’s been literally everywhere — and this year it’s a hideous shade of green that Pantone likes to call “Greenery,” but we’ve nicknamed “Vomit.”
Can you honestly imagine wearing that color and feeling confident about going outside to interact with people?
Neither can we.
Emerald green? Sure. Blue green? Absolutely. Pale green? Sure, why not. But this? Greenery may be okay for a golf course, but on a person it’s just… not good.
“Emblematic of new beginnings, PANTONE 15-0343 Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew,” Pantone said in a statement that’s not fooling anybody.
Just watch them mix Greenery and you’ll see what we’re talking about — does anything about this look refreshing or restorative to you?
More likely, this is just Pantone’s way of saying that 2017 is gonna blow.
Greenery is the perfect color to describe how we feel about restrictive abortion laws, the rise of emoji snakes, and the fact we’re all about to plunge headfirst into the Donald Trump renaissance.
“The fortifying attributes of Greenery signal us to take a deep breath and oxygenate,” Pantone reminds us, as if sensing our skepticism.
And maybe they have a point, but we have a point too.
On the outside Greenery may be saying, “everything is gonna be fine, just breath,” but on the inside all it’s saying is, “buckle up, partner. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.”
